Default Torching triggering ocular migraine following occipital lobe stroke??!! Anyone??

I recently took up lampworking again after a hiatus to open a store with my best friend for about 8 years. During that time i have had three diagnosed strokes, two temporal lobe and the ocipital lobe which I am struggling with the torch being a trigger in the ocipital lobe, forcing me to stop I immediately as I get very dark spots, blind spaces really, where my glass was in the flame. I have appropriate eye wear. I went through extreme family stress and wonder if this isn't neuralogic rather than visual. It sucks. Gonna try to get into the neurologist who saw me when I had the stroke initially.......It really just sucks

Juniemoon is bummed
